From summer floods to widespread power outages, all Detroiters are impacted by the escalating climate crisis and unjust environmental policies facing our city. This community panel will bring together an intergenerational coalition of organizers from Detroit’s environmental & climate justice dedicated to amplifying the solutions we need to ensure safety and equity for all. Rooting in Detroit activist and water warrior Charity Mahouna Hicks’ call to “wage love,” we’ll share fellowship, strategies, healing, and visions for an environmentally just Detroit.
